Programming Instructions

Follow these steps to program the remote control.

  1. On the remote control, press the IR SET button.
  2. Press the function button for the component to be controlled.
  3. Press the number buttons to enter the numeric code corresponding to the component and the make of the component to be controlled. Note: If more than one code number is listed for the manufacturer, enter one code at a time until you find one that works.
  4. Press the ENTER D.TUNING button and, once the program indicator flashes twice, the component(s) can then be controlled using this remote.


  • If more than one code number is listed for your device brand, enter one code at a time until you find one that works.
  • If none of the codes listed for your device brand worked, try codes listed for other brands or perform a search for the correct code (available only on certain models). Check the manual for information about the search option.
  • The previously entered code number will be erased when you enter a new code on the remote.
  • You may need to reprogram the remote after replacing the batteries.
  • If programming fails, you may need to reset the remote control: Remove the batteries, press each button twice, and then put the batteries back in.
  • The operation of a combination deck of any kind is not guaranteed.
  • Some functions of a device may not be controllable by the remote. Please refer to the device manual for details.
  • You may not be able to operate your non-Sony equipment with this remote control. This occurs when the device uses codes not provided for this remote. In this case, please use the device's original remote control or purchase a universal remote control that has a learning function.
